These long dark-staining objects, which became visible in the nucleus of cells at specific stages of cell division, were large enough to be detected using primitive light microscopes. Giant polytene chromosomes, found in certain cells such as the salivary gland cells of Drosophila (see Figure 1a), contain many thousands of copies of each chromosomal DNA align

2.1 Introduction

Polypeptides are synthesised by translation of messenger RNA (mRNA) on the ribosome, either in the cytosol or in association with the endoplasmic reticulum (rough ER). The polypeptide starts to adopt elements of secondary structure and to fold even as it is being synthesised, and certain covalent modifications of the polypeptide can also occur while translation is ongoing. Initial folding is rapid (of the order of a few seconds). Some proteins require cofactors, which are non-pr
